CableCaster Specs

CableCaster Specs

The CableCaster connects an antenna or Cable TV programming signal, TVs, the MediaCaster, and the IRCaster/IRDetector to the home entertainment network. The CableCaster:

    • amplifies your antenna or CATV signals to overcome cable losses
    • puts a 6dBmV gain on each NET port, to enhance the picture on every TV on the network
    • balances the signal strength from your antenna or Cable Company with your homemade TV channels. Extreme differences in signal strength may cause interference
    • uses reverse isolation to prevent the signal in your network from leaking out to your neighbor's TVs. Reverse isolation is accomplished by placing an amplifier between your antenna or Cable Company and your home entertainment network. The CableCaster has 70 dBmV reverse isolation

A Wall Adapter can supply power to the CableCaster directly, if there is an electrical outlet within 6 feet of the CableCaster. If there is no electrical power near the CableCaster, an IRCaster/IRDetector installed in the home entertainment network provides power remotely to the CableCaster.
